Big Brother is back in session!
The CBS reality hit returns for its 15th season on Wednesday, June 26, with Julie Chen back as host, and the network has finally unveiled the 16 new houseguests who will be spending their summer break scheming and competing for the $500,000 prize. Plus, CBS announced two new twists viewers will be (and take part in!) seeing in the new season: Instead of two houseguests being nominated for eviction, three competitors will now face the chopping block and fans will now get to vote for a weekly "Big Brother MVP," who will be given a "secret power." Color us intrigued!
So let's meet the new houseguests, shall we?!
